Bike: For Cube’s brand new Stereo Hybrid 120 SL model they took everything they know about building high performance e-MTBs, and combined it with their engineers' experience in carbon frame construction. The result? A uniquely light, sleek and lively hybrid full suspension bike that will redefine your expectations. Using Bosch's in-tube technology to incorporate the battery and motor into the down tube, they were able to reduce weight, improve handling and boost comfort levels even further than before. Combined with a spec sheet that includes a Fox 34 fork with matching shock, plus Shimano's peerless XT gears and brakes for the ultimate in performance and reliability, it makes for a bike that will take you further - and faster - than you thought possible.


Frame: There's no doubt that designing a trail-ready carbon full suspension e-MTB is a major challenge, but that's the kind of thing that gets Cube’s engineers all fired up. With a clean sheet of paper and a brief to improve on everything that we'd done before, they started by building a sleek down tube that fully encases the battery and, with a bash plate, the motor too. Protected from dust, water and rocks, the new setup doesn't just look good, it reduces the bike's centre of gravity too, for greater comfort and livelier handling in all trail conditions. Internal cable routing keeps gears shifting cleanly for longer with minimal maintenance, while the Boost rear end helps improve steering precision no matter how rough the trail. As you'd expect, Cubes renowned Agile Ride Geometry means that this is a bike that rides as good as it looks, with precisely the right blend of agility and stability to keep you coming back for more.

Features: A long list of impressive components is definitively topped by the best e-MTB drive currently available - the Bosch CX. With up to 75Nm of torque and astonishing power output, this is a consummate hill climber. Backing up all this power is a high-performance 500Wh battery, which opens up epic rides without the need to constantly cast a worrying glance at the battery display.

Shimano's 11-speed XT transmission not only guarantees flawlessly reliable gearshifts, but the 11-46 cassettes also offer an extremely large gear ratio range. The matching hydraulic disc brakes are every bit as good in terms of stopping power, particularly when paired with large 180mm rotors front and rear. Fox shock technology - with a Fox 34 Rhythm up front and Float DPS Performance EVOL at the rear - provides smooth, easily adjustable suspension travel.

And wheels pairing XT Boost hubs with Cube EX23 rims and shod with wide 2.35in Schwalbe Nobby Nic tyres transfer drive and braking forces to the trail with impeccable reliability.


Drive: The Performance Line CX raises eBiking to a new level experience with a noticeable boost in performance, a maximum torque of up to 75 newton meters and sustained power into the high cadence range for sporty acceleration, even when riding over alpine terrain. Bosch Performance CX drive complies with all road regulations and its compact design has the additional advantage in that it is attached to the bottom bracket, giving the bike an optimal center of gravity. The drive unit is equipped with an electronic control system with three sensors for force, cadence and speed, ensuring optimal coordination. It takes 1000 sensor measurements per second.


Battery: New the Bosch PowerTube 500. This sleek 500Wh battery allows bike Cube to integrate the tube shape battery into the frame. Until now most batteries fit externally. The battery is impressively easy to use. Thanks to a  locking system, the battery can be removed and re-attached just like any “plug &play” device and can be completely charged in its own charger in a record time of only 3 hours. 


Display: High-tech on the handlebars. The new Purion 2-in-1 onboard computer has all the basic information at the click of a thumb: The new Purion onboard computer operates with maximum efficiency and precision. The display clearly shows the most important information. The small control panel permits the rider to control any integrated areas on the bike. The Assistance Level and the light function can be controlled and selected. Furthermore, the small screen displays the current battery status, the coverage in kilometres and includes all the functions of a conventional bicycle computer as well as service interval, the display always reminds you when the eBike is due for a service.
